Event description

Description


The award-winning international business scholar, Dr Yvonne McNulty, a specialist in expatriation and global HR research is coming to Perth to present on why some dual-career expatriate spouses are more successful than others in continuing a career once abroad.

Global talent management begs the recruitment of not one individual, but essentially the successful recruitment of two people disguised in the form of a dual-career expatriate couple. In the midst of high refusal rates among these couples, Dr. Yvonne McNulty will discuss why challenges remain and what can be done about it.

Using data from her recent study, she will debunk the idea of a universal concept in which there is only one type of dual-career expatriate spouse. Rather, they belong to one of four distinct “R” profiles which helps determine the likelihood of dual-career success for the expatriate family as a whole.
